EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE FESTIVAL 2017

 

BORDERS, BENEFITS AND BIOMEDICINE: SURVEILLANCE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

Everyday life is already saturated with surveillance technologies, but some argue that the response to social issues lies in more and better surveilance. How is digital surveilance impacting upon issues of social justice and how can our thinking take us beyond narrower questions around privacy?

Join us for the panel discussion to explore these issues.

Speakers:

Iain Mitchell QC, Chairman of the CCBE Working Party on Surveillance
Dr Eric Stoddart, Associate Director of the Centre for the Study of Religion and Politics, University of St Andrews
Prof Bill Buchanan, Head of the Cyber Academy at Edinburgh Napier University

The event will be chaired by Prof Kirstie Ball, Schoold of Management, University of St Andrews

Date: April 4th 2017, 8.00pm–9.30pm

Venue:  Main Hall, Summerhall, Edinburgh, EH9 1PL

Cost: £8.50 (£6.50 Concession)/#scifive students £5
